Glenmorangie The Cadboll Estate 15 year old (Batch 2), 43%

Price: $85 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

The second release using Glenmorangie's estate-grown barley. There's wood spice and waxiness on the nose as well as licorice, dried leaves, and oat crackers. With water, it turns fruitier with notes of lemon wafers, mango, pineapple, and raspberries. Lush texture on the palate brings matcha latte, chocolate pudding, candied orange, butterscotch apple, coconut, and spice. Chocolate and spice carry over to the finish. Well formed with great balance and nuance.
